Oh how we need this support at any age. Our hormones are what control us on every level. Our immune system, our intellect, our moods, our heart health, our temperature (are we hot or cold), our skin and every other functioning aspect of our incredible, magical machine we call our "bodies"adaptogen.
We've included adaptogens in this recipe to assist us with our fluctuating hormones and 'adapt' to what life throws at us. Adaptogenic herbs can recharge your adrenal glands, helping you to respond to stress and moderate our reaction to life experiences (yes, help us become less stressed-out).
(Perfect for menopause and other hormone fluctuations)
1 ½ cup almond milk, coconut milk or soy milk (12 to 16 ounces - to desired thickness)
¼ cup Tulsi Tea (an adaptogen)
2 teaspoons maca powder
½ teaspoon ashwagandha (an adaptogen)
1 scoop of your favourite protein powder
1 teaspoon coconut oil
2 teaspoons chia seeds
1 tablespoon cacao powder
1 tablespoon cacao nibs (400x the antioxidants of chocolate)
¼ cup frozen berries (optional and your choice)
Blend on high for a minute or until smooth. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to chill it. Enjoy.
Your life will never be the same.
